Alesis Multiport: Recording directly to your iPod
So, picture this. You and your friends have decided to reunite your old highschool punk band for a second coming. A second jab at the musical stardom that you and your buddies dreamed about in history class. Though this time around, you’ll be damned if you’re going to record on a 4-track cassette recorder.
The $200 Alesis Multiport brings the power of recording into the new technological age of portable media. No more clumsy cassettes or memory cards, the Multiport records directly to your 5th generation iPod, 2nd or 3rd generation iPod Nano, or even your PC via USB, sending your tunes directly to your DAW of choice.
The new Alesis Multiport features built-in level meters and on-board iPod controls, so navigating the portable media player is as easy as tapping a button on the main control panel. Twin industrial grade XLR balance inputs with phantom power are perfect for hooking up most pro mics, while 1/4″ stereo outputs and USB support finish off the external audio transfers.
You can even playback from the iPod as you’re recording, which is sure to work wonders on getting your timing down just right. It’s features like these which really make all of the difference. The integration of new portable media technology with the older form of recordable media is really what the next step of technology is all about. Innovation and integration using the knowledge we already have to create something better.
